Quote/s of the Day – 26 July – The Memorial of Blessed Titus Brandsma O.C.D. (1881-1942) Martyr of the Faith
“He who wants to win the world for Christ
must have the courage,
to come in conflict with it.”
I am awestruck by Blessed Titus, who despite his ghastly sufferings, exclaimed:
“I see God in the work of His hands
and the marks of His love
in every visible thing.”
“Not my will but yours be done!” (what Blessed Titus would shout during torture and medical experiments)
“My vocation to the Church and to the priesthood
brought me so many grand and beautiful things
that I willingly accept something unpleasant in return for it.
I repeat in complete agreement with Job:
We have received good things at the hand of God,
why should we not receive
the evil He sends us in His Providence?”
Bl Titus Brandsma (1881-1942) Martyr
Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco
Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ.
This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions.
This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul.
"For the Saints are sent to us by God
as so many sermons.
We do not use them, it is they who move us
and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.”
Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975)
This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
